Faculty Position in Quantitative Cellular Imaging
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The UNC-CH Department of Biology seeks an Assistant Professor in Quantitative Sub-cellular, Cellular, and Organismal Imaging. Applications are invited from scientists in the area of biological imaging at the molecular, cellular or organismal level. Preference will be given to those developing new imaging technologies and/or using imaging techniques to study molecular dynamics, biophysics or assembly of molecular complexes either in vivo or in vitro. Possible research techniques include, but are not limited to, whole organism imaging, live-cell imaging, cryo-electron microscopy/tomography and atomic force/single-molecule fluorescence microscopy. Examples of experimental problems range from macromolecular structure to signal transduction or cytoskeletal dynamics to receptor-ligand interactions, gene regulation or other aspects of chromosome biology. Strong records in experimental work, modeling and analytical skills are encouraged. The successful candidate will contribute to a new initiative in Quantitative Biology (http://www.bio.unc.edu/News/FacultySearch/UNC_Qbio_Program.pdf).
